. >> nancy, thank you. >>> billionaire investor warren buffett on monday i asked him about the fiscal cliff. here is part of that interview. >> what happens if the fiscal cliff comes and happens? what will it do to our economy? >> i don't think it will do that much. i think people will assume a solution will be found quite promptly. it's a little like the debt ceiling question. people know -- the rest of the world may think we're idiotic at times but don't think we're going to commit suicide. so i think if -- i hope something gets worked out before january 1st. if it goes a little bit beyond that, i don't think -- >> if it's january 10th -- >> if you guaranteed me that the fiscal cliff, we would go past that, i wouldn't sell a share of stock today. >> you have confidence that in the end they will fix it? >> and that this economy works. >> he is confident of a deal huh? >> he really does. he believes there's a possibility -- he thinks it will take some time. first thing he wants to see is a minimum tax, which they can do now in terms of people who make more than a mi

think of warren buffett's proposal for a minimum income tax on high earners for people who are now paying so much less, paying what mitt romney paid, paying what warren buffett pays, 14 or 16%, because of capital gains and other investments, what about a minimum tax that would require them to pay 35%? >> the president has supported the buffet principle for a long time and his state of the union address last year, he supported buffet rule which would set a minimum tax for those who are the most wealthy. but we have a set of problems we need to address. and this requires a comprehensive solution and most importantly, we need to collect additional revenue from the most fortunate which includes raising tax rates to where they were during the clinton years. >> similarly, what about revisiting simpson-bowles? a lot of people are talking about the framework, a lot of work has been done, are there means testing, further means testing of medicare, for instance, or other kinds of delayed medicare enactment, you know, sliding the age, for instance, kicks in other ways to try to down the road

, i think warren buffett also suggested to raise it to $500,000, not $250,000. so that could be more palatable, too, to upper middle class people. they'll get a break up to $500,000. but it's very hard once you hit the million-dollar bracket to say, oh, no, no, we're going fro text those people. clearly these republicans are seeing the same poll numbers that obama is seeing, that this is not where the american people are right now. >> it's interesting you bring up the poll numbers. keith, let me bring you in on these. we know a exit poll combines. our first read team points out a republican pollster david winston says 61% say the better way to raise revenue is closing loopholes and reforming the tax code and they're seeing some republicans look at that particular poll over the one we've ma jorlly talked about, which is the exit polling. >> i wonder if these are the same republican pollsters who said romney is going to win in a landslide. >> touche, touche. >> you have to take this with grain of salt. the reality is the american people knew what barack obama was running for when he wa

from the white house. it comes on the same day warren buffett writing in the "new york times" in an op-ed saying rich is $500,000 a year, and let's tax them. let's have a 30% minimum tax for the income above $1 million of rich people. look what he said here. the "forbes" 400, wealthiest individuals in america hit a new group record. $1.7 trillion, more than five times the $300 billion total in 1992. he says you know, my gang has done pretty well. so leave the middle class alone. and so these two kind of the 1-2 punch from the white house perspective, at least, today on what we should be doing in debt talks. >> buffett is interesting. he said he doesn't think it will be that big a deal if we go off the cliff. >> he says don't worry about raising taxes on investments and income from investments. he said, i will do a good deal, because it's a good deal. not because my taxes are going to be a certain rate. so he has pounded this -- beat this drum for some time. but this is the white house, the latest from the white house on the fiscal cliff and how it would hurt the middle class. >> christ

't think you see anyone saying it has to be one plan. warren buffett put one out this week as a way to bring in the revenue. >> a minimum tax on the wealthy. >> right. people are open to different plans. that's the most important thing. you haven't seen people say, it's my way or no other way. that's not what happened. >> it seems the president says you have to get there by rates. >> if you need the significant revenue, i believe you have to do something with rates. let's let everyone put their proposals out. we want to do something significant, not just pretend that people are doing it. >> how much is this posturing -- people who are involved in this seem to say i think we'll get the deal. is that what you think? if so, when? >> oi think first of all the election demanded such a deal. you look at the candidates that lost, we're adhering to rigid ideologies, while the balance of power didn't change in washington, there was a message from the people of this country that they wanted to see a different tone, wanted to see people who were willing to stand next to someone that they didn'
